    1. I would like to visit your shop and perhaps BLOG about it, My account was hacked a few months ago and deleted some of the post !

  9. i have some ateneo stamps from my aunt’s collection that i intend to sell…these are centennial commemorative stamps (1859-1959)…i was hoping you could maybe, give me an idea how to sell them and to whom…i was told i can sell them for at least P1000 a piece since these are already rare and vintage…perhaps, i can get some alumnae interested…

    1. Thanks for visiting this site! The author is not into buying and selling of stamps – I just BLOG about my personal collection of stamps and other items. I think there are stamp clubs which meets regularly at the main lobby of Philippine Postal Corporation every first sunday of the month and every third sunday of the month . APO Philatelic Club and Filipinas Stamp Collectors’ Club . They usually meet from 12:30 PM to past 5:00PM

      But as per catalog value, selling those Ateneo 1959 FDC stamp on covers at Php 1,000 each is highly expensive . I got some in local bourse at less than Php 100
